Badsberg Wine Cellar from Rawsonville in the Breedekloof Valley was crowned top laureate with one platinum and two gold awards at the seventeenth annual Muskadel SA Awards ceremony recently held in Paarl.


The platinum award went to their Badsberg red muscadel 2017, while their 2008 and 2009 red muscadel won gold. The 2008 muscadel also won gold at the 2009 awards event.

Robertson’s Mont Blois Wine Estate was the only other cellar to be honoured with a platinum award. The wine estate has been in the Bruwer family for six generations and their winning wine, Mont Blois Pump House white muscadel 2016, is made from grapes cultivated from vineyards that are 26 years old.

Three other wines from the Robertson Wine Valley won gold: Bon Courage Estate (a regular performer at the SA Muskadel Awards) won two gold awards for their red muscadel 2018 and white muscadel 2018.  Montagu Wine & Spirits also won gold for their white muscadel (no vintage).

The Breedekloof Valley collected five gold medals: Du Toitskloof Wine Cellar added to their performances over the past four years with two gold medals for their red muscadel 2016 and hanepoot jerepigo 2014. Slanghoek Wine Cellar walked away with no less than three gold medals for their red muscadel 2017, red muscadel 2018 and hanepoot jerepigo 2017.

De Wet Cellar from the Worcester Wine and Olive Route won gold for their white muscadel 2017.

A firm favourite among muscadel lovers is the sweeter wines from the Northern Cape and Orange River Cellars won two gold medals for their white muscadel 2017 and hanepoot 2017.
